SAF-HOLLAND introduces auxiliary steerable lift axle suspension system

SAF-HOLLAND, a global manufacturer of suspensions, fifth wheels and landing gear, announced the introduction of its 13.5k capacity, NEWAY LSZ auxiliary steerable lift axle suspension system.

With a 17.5-inch package size, the LSZ’s design is a minimum of 4 in. up to 10 in. shorter than comparable lift axles, said the company. This design offers customers application versatility, enables easy installation and service, and provides extra frame rail space for component packaging and options.

LSZ Auxiliary Steerable Lift Axle Suspension SystemThe Super Chamber lift on the LSZ features 4-second lift speed. The Super Chamber position provides increased protection from road hazards and easier access for servicing.

The LSZ’s rolling lobe air springs are positioned at an angle, delivering improved spring rate for increased stability and ride quality. Its parallelogram design maintains precise steering geometry while reducing tire wear.

The rugged design utilizes a kingpin assembly with spherical bearings, which eliminates thrust bearings that often require shimming and reaming. As a result, service requirements are greatly reduced.
